Cesaro vs. Samoa Joe – King of the Ring First-Round Match: Raw, Aug. 19, 2019

August 20, 2019

I had the opportunity to
speak Triple H earlier today, the man who once won the King
of the Ring Tournament. He talked a lot about how this tournament
can change your entire career. It can change the path
that your career is on. Once you win King of the Ring,
everything is in your future.>>Samoa Joe is in control. And is Joe is gonna advance?>>And now Samoa Joe taken
off his feet by Cesaro. Cesaro’s gotta capitalize guys.>>And you could see the wheels
spinning for Cesaro though, as he starts to pick up speed.>>And what an upper cut again,
Joe, to his knees.>>And Cesaro getting Joe
back into the ring, Cesaro.>>Somehow I think these two like this.>>[LAUGH] Gluttons for punishment.>>And now measuring Samoa Joe, high
cross body into the cover, is it enough? Again, Samoa Joe keeps his
King of the Ring hopes alive.>>Can you imagine one of these two men
against McIntyre, how physical that’ll be? Or what Ricochet may be able to do in
the ring against one of these two?>>We’ve seen Ricochet and Cesaro,
what they’ve done in the ring together.>>One for the ages.>>Another uppercut by Cesaro, as Cesaro
continuing to go right at the chest. And now, wait a minute!>>Can we swing?>>We can!>>My god.>>King of swing,
now looking for a sharpshooter. Can Cesaro turn Samoa Joe? Center of the ring. Is Joe gonna tap out? There’s nowhere for
Joe to go, and look it.>>Smart move,
great ring awareness from Cesaro.>>Cross face, shifted momentum by Joe. Shoulders down, another kick out.>>Veteran move right there by Samoa Joe. And now looking for
the neuralizer, reverse.>>Wow.>>And trying to fly in the air again. He’s caught, Coquina Clutch!It’s
locked in, center of the ring. Cesaro’s go nowhere to go. Cesaro has to tap. [SOUND] [MUSIC]>>Here is your winner,
by submission, Samoa Joe.>>Samoa Joe, the first superstar to advance in
the King of the Ring tournament.>>Three more wins for Samoa Joe and he’ll
be wearing the crown as King of the Ring.

    I love Joe, I really do, but come on man. We all know they're not gonna push Joe harder than Upupdowndown…..

    Back when Cesaro was the US Champion, I was digging his charisma and athletism. Now all I'm digging is his athletism since they won't give him any tv time…. Move Cesaro to Smackdown, please.

    If Samoa Joe wins King of the Ring, that would turn his whole career around and make him the legend he needs to be. Nation of Violence comeback. Plus, have Cesaro face off Rollins for the Universal Title.

    Realy cole winning the king of the ring everything is in your future, what a weird statement you're saying as if the winner will become a world champion. You have carried the same storyline with brock and Seth for a time I can't even remember. The tournament is just for namesake at least it meant something when stone-cold won it now its a jobbers title
